Abstract

SUMMARY: λgt derivatives carrying the (fumarase) gene of have been detected by complementation of an fumarase mutation in lysogen-filled plaques. The gene, mutations in which affect the germination response of spores to -alanine, is also present on the two transducing phages described. The cloned regions in these two phages include RI-generated fragments of 5·0 kb and 1·4 kb; the former fragment carries .
